Album Review

William St. Hugh – “Luciferian, The” – [Self Released]

whngr   3/16/2021   A Library, CD

Lovely and somber orchestral movements from this mysterious project out of Fairhaven Massachusetts. Primarily string compositions with sparse accompaniment from timpani, cymbal, and flute (I suspect all instruments are synthesized) that evoke a lonely and perhaps haunted soul’s journey towards damnation.

Though this album is neither exceptional nor ground breaking it does feel very personal and it is easy to imagine the artist pouring themselves into this release with zealous abandon. Though slightly lacking in emotion, it can feel rather cold and intellectual at times or perhaps even dead inside, not unlike a sociopath trying to connect with the strange emotive interactions they sometimes encounter so they might mimic, mirror, and emulate to gain their deepest of desires; the imagined power over others.
